Summertime

It’s almost June, and when it’s almost June I can’t help but think about summer. When I think about summerI think about how to keep my 6 and 8 year olds engaged and excited and busy.

My wife booked camps, planned exciting day trips and made vacations plans.  Despite that I know that the”I am bored” moments are inevitable.  So how do we  combine the “I am bored” moments with educational opportunities?  I received an email from Tech and Learning recently that addresses this very question!

Here is a list of on-line camps to help with the summer slump:
